Possibly the most beautiful house in the most beautiful of settings. The host and hostess were both absolutely lovely and kind hearted people who make you feel at home the minute you arrive. As an additional bonus, their two dogs, Biscuit and Lottie were also very friendly and playful. 10/10 for comfort, 10/10 for hospitality 10/10 for the breakfast. Would...
